I’ve often wondered why someone would buy Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mints when there is a facsimile available in the form of Keebler Grasshoppers. Apparently I’m not the only one who has pondered this cookie dilemma.
I would have to disagree with the linked bloggers. The Thin Mints have a much mintier taste, and due to the larger size, more crunchiness per cookie. Eating a couple consecutively results in a nice cookie slurry in your mouth. The grasshoppers DO have more of a fudgey taste, but it’s not what I’m looking for.
Both cookies are best right out of the freezer.
Girl Scout Thin Mints are the clear winner in my mind. I think I paid $3.50 a box? See you local girl scout for details or ebay.
